This FREEDOM+ Surf bundle includes everything you need to turn your surfboard into an electrical shark deterrent. The FREEDOM+ Surf is suitable for all surfers and all surfing levels (not suitable for children under 14).
The design of the all-new FREEDOM+ Surf is the result of collaboration with Ocean & Earth and 2 x World Surfing Champion Tom Carroll. The removable power module with LED indication for power on/off and battery life is housed in the custom-designed Ocean & Earth tail pad kicker, enabling you to move the power module easily between your boards and for recharging. The all-important antenna electrodes have been designed into a sticker thin adhesive decal applied to the underside of the surfboard. With a near zero drag adhesive decal antenna (only 500 microns thin), there is no impact on your surfing performance. FREEDOM+ turns your surfboard into an electrical shark deterrent.

The technology and patents have a twenty-year development history, in partnership with organisations such as the world’s leading experts in White Sharks, the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board in South Africa. As a result, Shark Shield is trusted by professional adventurers around the world, including navies, military and police divers, and is mandated safety equipment in many industries.
Shark Shield consists of two electrodes which, when both are submerged, emit a three-dimensional electronic field that surrounds the user. When a shark comes within a few meters of the Shark Shield, the strong electronic pulses emitted by the device cause the shark to experience muscle spasms.
This does NOT harm the shark in any way but merely causes it to experience a high level of discomfort. From testing, the closer the shark is to the Shark Shield field, the more spasms occur in the sharks’ snouts, which results in it turning away from the electronic field, thereby protecting the user.
Surfing legend Tom Carroll . is as passionate about shark conservation as he is passionate about the swell, Tom has been involved in the design of surf-based shark deterrents. Shark Shield lets Tom feel at ease while out in the open ocean.
“Shark Shield should be applauded for taking the health of this ancient species into consideration and at the same time as providing protection to humans who enter their territory. This is a win-win situation — for surfers and sharks.”
